The starting point of the tour or the sight is easily and comfortably accessible by public transport:
By bus line 176 from Völs am Schlern to St. Zyprian, changing to bus line 185 to the Nigerpass stop or by bus line 185 from Bozen bus station to the Nigerpass.
The set-off point for this snowshoe walk is the Nigerpass. Even at this point, the views over the Rosengarten are absolutely stunning. The trail then winds along a trail through the Nigra forest and on to the Vöstl mountain hotel and further on to the Jocher Hof farm, past the Hagner Alm mountain hut, and on to the Schillerhof. This loop trail begins on the big forest trail and ends at the Nigerjochhaus restaurant.
This snowshoe expedition to the Schillerhof arm leads you over gently undulating countryside above the Tierser Valley. It boasts breathtaking views over the Rosengarten mountain, and is not particularly challenging on a technical level.
